dropping into the 50's to lower half of the 60's later on tonight. humidity still in place through sunday morning. tomorrow a blend of sunshine and clouds with the risk of a shower. couldn't cancel the outdoorman plans. that will bring in lower humidity. erin: super hot for the next few days. all right. okay. center is getting a plane. it was donated by a woman whose late husband was building it in his garage. they cover the it and returned it. they hope youngsters who sit in it will get
